I'm Riding For

My Grandparents

Both my grandparents (out of respect they won’t be named) passed due to cancer. They were both selfless and hardworking people and I wish they had better treatment for their illnesses then as it may have eased their pain and suffering or placed them into remission. This is now a hope that I have for these kids who are fighting a cruel and unfair disease.

My Story

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Because right now, cancer is the largest single killer of children from disease in Australia – over 600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and sadly, 3 die every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

And so I am riding and raising funds to support the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.
